This "small" guitar offers a handy size for playing more electro. His thin body makes it very comfortable. Sitting, standing, light weight is forgotten. Access to the tuner and preamp settings poses no worries. The size of the nut (46mm) and the rather low string action allows a quick game. Moving from folk or electric Ibanez does not traumatize this.
The reduced thickness of the body and wood quality are not the epitome of this guitar sound acoustic nylon. Despite an average projection, the overall balance is coherent sound. A change of pulling strings for a larger (with minor adjustment of the handle) gave a very good result, more brightness and power. Acoustically this little Ibanez is doing respectably, without more ...
Once amplified, it turns out. I was surprised by the quality of pre-amp and the piezo. Not much like setting but very effective, beautiful and dynamic sound via direct or an acoustic amp.
She (and you) will like in a register pop / jazz / latin ... nothing prevents them to ring the Fernando Sor objectively but other instruments are better in this exercise.
Having been forced to part of an electro-premium nylon, I could consider staying on without being able to play this type of guitar ... What if the resale of the above-mentioned guitar leaves you less than two hundred euros once your debts had been cleared? You turn to Ibanez! I had, some years ago, bought for a beginner model G5ECE (the one with conventional measurements) and was pleasantly surprised. So I just reiterate for my own model with the "Thin", the corresponding model in my game more jazz / latin amplified. I'm not disappointed, this little Ibanez sounds perfectly correct. A quality / price excellent.
